GFRA races cancelled for July 4th weekend, other events

FAIRBANKS-One of the Independence weekend sports events has been cancelled. All of last week's rain overflowed the Greater Fairbanks Racing Association track and pit areas and they were not able to pump out the water so this weekend's races have been cancelled.

But there a couple of things to get into this weekend. In the morning the Jingle Bell Run/Walk 5K to fight Arthritis starts at 10 a.m. with registration at 8:30. The race starts at Santa Claus House in North Pole.

In the afternoon American Legion Baseball action on the diamond. The Alaska Wild host Chugiak at Arco Field for the Saturday double header that's starts at 12:30 p.m.
